Our Location in Clerkenwell, EC1
Clerkenwell is located in the heart of London with the central London postcode of EC1 (East Central 1). We’re located within walking distance of the City of London, the West End, and have great transport links with the rest of Greater London and beyond via Farringdon station and a number of other local tube and overground stations within walking distance. Clerkenwell Close, where our residents reside, is located between Clerkenwell Green and Rosebury Avenue.
Membership to Clerkenwell Close Tenants Association is currently restricted to residents of Clerkenwell Close and who are current tenants of Clarion Housing Group.
There is another TA that is run in the neighbourhood for residents of the Peabody Estate, but those tenants will have to contact the Peabody Trust for more information about joining that one.
Clerkenwell Close TA hold several official meetings each year, and previous meetings have been held in the crypt in St. James Church, the Kings Head Pub and the Horseshoe Pub.
In Addition to official TA meetings, we hold a couple of parties for residents each year.
Clerkenwell Close TA gets a portion of funding donated to us from TV and film productions that film in the local area. Production companies often get in touch with residents through the TA to ensure that noise and disruption in the area are kept to a minimum where possible, and to offset the disruption to tenants we have been given a series of donations to keep the TA running, provide us with needed funds for the garden, and to pay for TA community events.
